It is not too early to begin thinking about summer camp for your child with autism. Families in the New York City area will want to reserve January 31 so that they can attend the Special Camp Fair sponsored by Resources for Children with Special Needs, Inc.
Parents and caregivers of children and teens with disabilities can plan ahead for summer with the wealth of information offered at the 24th annual free Special Camp Fair on Saturday, January 31, 2009 from 11 AM to 3 PM. at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, (Entrance to Fair on Columbus Ave. near W. 60th St.) NYC.
Representatives from 70 New York City day camps and sleepaway camps in the northeast will be on hand to help parents and professionals plan productive summer experiences for children with disabilities. The Fair will also feature information on travel programs, remedial education programs, volunteer and job opportunities and early childhood programs. Spanish and sign language interpreters will be available. We regret that no child care is provided.
Visitors to the Fair will receive a free copy of the Camps 2009 Directory. The Camps 2009 Directory (publication date January 2009) is also available by sending a check for $25 plus $8.00 postage and handling to Resources for Children with Special Needs, Inc., Dept. PR1, 116 E. 16th St., 5th Floor, New York, NY 10003.
